Can I base an employment decision on smoking?
I work in a small company and all the employees are within a small radius of one another. We were recently hiring, and something that my employer would ask is if the person smoked. He did not want to hire a smoker, as the smell is generally annoying and he has asthma. Does he have the right to not hire someone based on their smoking/non-smoking habits or does this fall under discrimination laws?
